No just natural sandy soil that has no lime in it I don't use any Builders sand
Cordy... you should be ok now but I would use physical protection rather than thermal.

Yes that's the one, German EBay, but the plant started it's journey in Budapest, according to the tracking details. Arrived in 4 days in fantastic condition. He seems happy to receive reasonable offers, and is a bit cheaper than UK sellers. That said, I'd prefer to give my 'hard earned' to UK guys, but that isn't always feasible financially.

My Rostrata I got late last year is a bit different from yours Phatplants and its a fully skirted specimen as well.
Unfortunately unlike yous mine was damaged in transit
